Spring Updates For Dark And Light

Spring is nearly here and with it comes a whole new season of updates From Snail Games, Dark and Light. They’re dusting off their keyboards to bring you some much needed spring cleaning. A patch recently dropped for the game in a which a whole bunch of changes were made. You can see the full list over on the Dark and Light Steam page.

Here’s what we know so far:


The team and community around Dark and Light have been working on the localisation of the game for some time now. They have managed to fix bugs that have been affecting people being able to play in their own language. Most players will now be able to play in their native language but they are encouraging people to come forward if they notice any mistakes.

Removal of the Structure Demolish Timer

One of the things that has been buzzing about the Dark and Light community was the structure demolish timer. They have removed it for now in but it is being kept in PvE for the time being. They will continue to monitor how this effects servers.

Fireworks – Players will be able to play with fireworks in the latest update. During the Spring Festival, you will be able to find a variety of firework drops in barrels. The drops will stop after the event ends so you better get them while you can! You will still be able to craft them however if you have access to a Mortar and Pestle. Players will also be able to witness firework displays at all three cities at 12am PST.

Standing Torch Flame Effects – Something that has apparently been quite popular in the community. So, the developers have decided to add some more effects. Now, Wood and Straw will turn the flames yellow; magic shards will turn them purple; and Bone will turn them blue. You will also be able to add Elemental cores to change the flames colour. If that’s your thing then you will probably enjoy this new addition.

Optimisations and Bug Fixes

Snail Games have also worked on a few fixes for the game as well. They’ve optimised the Peregriff textures as well as the Wind Riders animation and audio.

They’ve also worked on mending some of the bugs with the game. Don’t forget you can check the full details on their Steam Community page.

So, if you are thinking about getting back into the world of Dark and Light then now would be the time to do it. Spring is the time for new beginnings. And, if you haven’t had a chance to play the game yet then why not give it a go?


I've always had a passion for games and, since I found my passion for writing, I wanted to write about them. I'll play just about anything if I can get my hands on it. I have an unhealthy obsession with all things Star Wars and my motto is "Never apologise for being a nerd."

So what do you think?
